Except, perhaps, 6 am when the babeola declared, with a loud shriek, that it was time to Carpe Diem. Ouch.
I had no idea babies were so dangerous. The babeola has been killing me with cuteness lately.
WARNING! EXTREME GUSHING OVER OFFSPRING TO FOLLOW! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
First, she says and waves bye-bye now when I put her down for her nap or at night. I love the way she warbles when she talks. To. Die. For.
For Daddy's birthday, she gave him her first kiss yesterday. I always knew she was a Daddy's girl.
Of course, it's Momma that she blows kisses to, so I'm not exactly out in the cold.
She also brings all her stuffed animals and dolls to me for hugs and kisses. We like to smack Pooh Bear's dupa (butt) and do the dupa chant that I used to do during diaper changes when she was an itty bitty thing. Then we turn Pooh Bear around and rub his Buddha Belly and sing the (made up) Buddha Belly song. She loves this.We do it over and over and over, but that's okay because I love it too.
And, just to keep us on our toes, she's been climbing the furniture. We had our backs turned for one second yesterday and when we turned back around the babeola was walking on top of the bookcase. Yikes!

I meltdown like Chernobyl
Ah yes, as you might guess, cuteness aside, the babeola is going through a tantrum phase. We're doing our best to help her through it, but its extremes tend to make us wince and wish we had earplugs. And a nanny.
